I got on my computer boot manager is missing. I have a compaq desk top. My husband has a dell computer. He has the windows 7 disc for his dell, I do not have the windows 7 disc for my compaq. Can I use the windows 7 disc for his dell for my compaq? I don't want to screw up my computer any more than it is!

Hello Woodsy,

If the disc is a factory recovery disc, then no.

If his computer is the same 32/64 bit as your computer, then you could create a system repair disc on his computer to use on yours for this.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

BootMgr Tutorial

Works Great! Recieved an error message while booting up my computer that BootMgr was compressed. My system would not boot up, but once I followed the tutorial BootMgr is missing - Fix step by step my system is up and running. I went to my other computer and made a recovery disk then when system attempted to boot up at CD/DVD it ask to press any key. Then once at command prompt typed c: and followed commands. Once that was complete it started loading files. So happy that this worked.

Thanks for the tutorial,
Ethel

Dinesh: Like many of us, I too have the Bootmgr is missing. In my case I was slowly moving everything from Win XP Pro to Win 7. I partitioned my boot drive and installed Win 7 on the second partition and then would normally boot to XP, but since I had a menu option at boot up to boot to either XP or 7, I could choose which OS to boot too. I made a backup image of the Win7 partition only when I was ready to move to 7, with Ghost, and imaged a new Hard Drive. At boot I got the missing Bootmgr error. I found this forum and tried to follow Fix-4, however when I typed cd boot and hit enter, nothing was found. I did a DIR and saw that there is no Boot directory on C:\ drive. There was a Boot directory under Windows. (c:\windows\boot). I did not try the 3 bootrec commands in that directory since you specifically said to launch the Boot directory in C:\. Could it be that in Windows 7 (Ultimate) there is no Boot directory in C:\? By the way, I had previously tried to do a Win7 repair that did not work, thus your fix was my next try. Any ideas why I don't have a Boot directory on my boot drive (C:\) and how to repair my OS?
